On the 6th & 7th March 2010, Fr. Crispino D'Souza, the Principal of St. Dominic Savio High School, Andheri, organized a Savio Hoop Basketball Tournament in Mumbai at the basketball courts of the school. There were nine girls teams and ten boys teams that participated in the  Under 13 tournament. The purpose of the tournament was to encourage young talent in basketball so that one day there would be good players in the game who would be selected to play for the State, the Nation and perhaps also for NBA.
